For The Gourmand
Feldspar’s entire range is a must for any cook or foodie! Feldspar make their items out of fine bone china (the strongest type of ceramic) by a family run pottery factory in Stoke on Trent, supporting local British production and craftsmanship. They were anxious to preserve the skills required to keep bone china production going in England (and to show that it is perfectly possible to make things from start to finish in the UK). Their Devon pottery is half of their ceramics and everything they make is hand painted there. Feldspar have made the perfect butter dish, available in both cobalt blue and 24k gold handles!
Available in both cobalt blue and 22k gold, Feldspars cake plates are incredibly chic and made to truly last. They are the perfect size for a lovely slice of holiday cake or even a warm scone, heaped with closed cream, then jam (the Devon way). These plates and bowls are designed to sit together or alone – each with a shallow dimpled lip and sketch-like hand painted banding to contrast with the bright white of the fine bone china, brought out by a high gloss transparent glaze.
For The Woman On The Go
No more bad hair days! Marai’s leather scrunchies complement every hairstyle and give your outfit the ultimate finishing touch. The scrunchies are stretchy, comfortable to wear, and also look cool as an accessory around your wrist. The Marai twist is a small opening at the side of the seam, allowing the elastic to be tightened or replaced at any time. They are made from discarded goat hides that have been vegetable tanned on the exterior along with organic cotton and an organic rubber elastic band on the interior. The perfect stocking stuffer!
More than just a tote bag: This timeless bag is an absolute must-have – always elegant and also perfect for day-to-day working life. The tote offers more storage space than most shoulder bags and can even accommodate a smaller laptop. The big bonus: A zipper that protects your essentials from tumbling out. The rolled straps are comfortable to wear on your shoulder. The bag and interior lining is made from discarded goat hides that have been vegetable tanned. The strap is also made from GOTS certified organic cotton!
For The Woman Who’s Always Cold
Everyone needs an ultra comfy scarf! This scarf from Riley Studio is a true essential. It is made out of recycled cashmere yarn, making it so soft and luxurious – even as soft as virgin cashmere but produced at a fraction of the environmental impact. Every kilogram of recycled cashmere yarn uses 92% less water compared to virgin cashmere – that is saving 65.5 liters of water per scarf! The scarf is a timeless knitted design with subtle ribs and a Riley Studio brand tab. One size fits all and looks wonderful styled easily.
The Andes Beanie is a staple in the Bare Knitwear collection year after year. Light weight and wearable, double layers of fine merino wool and baby alpaca keep the cold air out while providing everyday luxury. Easy to wear, make the Andes Beanie your own by wearing it cuffed up or worn baggie. It is ethically made in Lima, Peru with 55% baby alpaca, 21% fine merino wool, 24% polyamide – so soft and cozy!
